K, here's the situation, I've recently joined a "alternative rock" band that plays pretty heavy. So far I've been bumming off of the lead guitarists' bass amp/head for "garage band" practice, but I need to get my own gear. Most of the venues we'll be playing at will have a couple hundred people, so I don't know how big/powerful of a setup to get. I've read the stickies, but that just confused me even further because I see so many options when searching on Ebay and the like. Especially when it comes to mixing different brand heads and cabs, will they work ok? Any advice will be appreciated seeing as my only experience is with a 35W combo amp for practice, thanks.
